Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We've lived in Juneau for 24 years and consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have found such a beautiful environment and community to call home. We both grew up in Oregon and are now splitting time between the 2 places that we call home. We wanted others to experience the beauty and serenity of our cove when we are away. There truly is no other place like it.

Why the Owner Chose Juneau, AK, USA:
We purchased Otter Way Cottage after leasing it for a year. When you wake up every morning and no matter what the weather looks like outside you still feel like you are on vacation we knew that was where we wanted to be. The front of the house is all windows and faces the water. There are days you feel like you are watching a nature channel through the windows. With porpoises that play in the cove, eagles, herons, otters and whales you won't want to leave the cove.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The million dollar view, the convenient location and the quiet neighborhood will make you fall in love with Indian Cove. Rent a Kayak 5 minutes down the road at Auke Bay Kayak Rentals and paddle out to Indian Island that sits right in front of the Cottage. Build a bonfire in the fire pit and look for the Aurora. Bar-B-Q on the expansive deck and wait for the tide to go out then walk across the land bridge to the little island and watch the sunset. So many things to enjoy.
